those crossings. the nation has come up with what is known as the western hemisphere tribal initiative, which has basically given the states, the border states, and thus the ability to use a limited amount of travel documents that they can apply for and used across there. now, they have not gotten to that point yet. when we do get to that point, they will be able to cross back and forth as citizens. this goes back to the treaty of 1835, when that nation was split. the other question that to ask relates to the forward operating base is where our officers are deployed. they live and operate in those areas. this year as part of a $600 million supplement that will bring us up to 10 forward operating bases in that remote area. they are absolutely essential to operations. i think that you will be pleasantly surprised to see the difference from when you saw it the last time to what the border is now. still a lot of work to do. >> are the shadows still operating? >> they do operate and are currently working for ice. >> thank-you. >> [inaudible] we do appreciate it. i look forward to further di

, this country moves closer and closer to an almost unthinkable national default. congressional correspondent kate bolduan here to explain if she can what's going on tonight. kate, can you? what is going on? >> reporter: it's been a wild day up here, i'll tell you, piers. it all started when the house republican leaders, they abruptly stopped debate on this bill that they thought they were going to have enough support for because they didn't have enough support. and then hours of behind closed doors, arm twisting and trying to round up the votes around this bill as they continued throughout the evening to say that they still intended to have a vote and then abruptly just a little over an hour ago, i would say, republican leaders came out and they said they were not going to have a vote and that they'd be continuing their negotiations and they'd come back in tomorrow morning. so what really we're now learning has been happening behind the scenes at least in part. we've learned from a house republican source. is that they're trying to win over some of the undecides of some of the no votes among

-- the cuts made in this bill alone right our nation's fiscal? no. it moves the rutter to turn it around. the bill changes the way washington has spent taxpayers' money in the past. for example, there are no earmarks in this bill. also, because this bill is being considered in an open rule, any member can offer an amendment to increase or decrease funding levels. again, the 3.3% cut to the department of energy and corps of engineers' budget will not solve all our nation's fiscal problems but at least it's the step in the right direction. mr. speaker, once again, i rise in support of this rule and the underlying legislation. given our current pudget situation, the appropriations committee has worked diligently to provide us with the fiscal responsible bill that allows congress to begin living within its means, just like the american families and businesses are forced to do every day. i encourage my colleagues to vote why on the -- vote yes on the bill and yes on the rule. i reserve the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman reserves the balance of his time. the gentlem

to exist as a single nation. one single state did not defend the nation after the attacks on pearl harbor we came together. one state on its own or one region did not end segregation and establish civil rights. we did it together. there are times when the stakes are so high that we simply must unite. so i raise the question of where are we with this bill that seems to attack both clean air and clean water by repealing requirements that prevent pesticide spray from chemical companies from entering rivers and streams. i come from the energy sector. i believe that the energy sector creates jobs. i also believe that we can be a good neighbor, strong in our domestic development and production, but also concerned about clean air. when you listen to those who have worked in this area for so long, you hear opposition from the wilderness society that says this is an extreme assault on america's bedrock environmental protection. the clean water network that says these severe spending and budgetary cuts in this bill includes not only cut bus a series of policy riders really having no place in the ap
